Import RTF with bullets and numbering

Post by pgarner528 » Fri Feb 23, 2018 2:48 pm

I have a simple RTF file that I am trying to import. It has 2 round bullets and 3 numbered items in separate lists. When importing, the round bullets appear as a numbered list. This happens in the RichViewEdit Demo program.

Is there any way of importing this to display the round bullets in the first list?

Thanks

Paul

This file uses overriding of a list type. The list table defines a numbered list, but the list override table changes the type of this list to bulleted. I never saw this RTF feature used before. Normally, list overrides are used to define starting value of list numbering. RTF list type overriding is not supported in TRichView yet.

What application created this file?

The RTF is created by an OCX RTF component - TE Edit from subsystems.com

We have been using this control for many years and have millions of documents at client sites created with it.

Ok, I'll implement reading this RTF feature in the next update.
It was not implemented because I thought nobody uses it.
